The Baimi Xiejie neighbourhood rehabilitation project is the result of the partnership established between the municipalities of Rome, Beijing and Paris, since 2004, in the framework of the European Commission aided Asia Urbs Programme. The relevance of this project is in its holistic approach toward the recovery and rehabilitation of Beijing historic centre, not only respecting the urban and architectural fabric but having, as main objective, the preservation of the social mix existing in the area.
